Nest Tour: Container Home

The inside of this Dallas home looks so luxurious, you would never guess that materials used to construct it were shipping containers!  While the outside view does gives a few clues, the containers and creatively given a facelift.  The home is made from 14 shipping containers and is 3,700 sf.  And as an added bonus, the roof doubles as a 1,400 sf deck!  How cool is that?shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, style shipping container, house, interior design, modern, stylephotos via curbed

grandma's pork chops with sauerkraut and applesauce, pork, recipe

My grandma is an amazing cook and baker.  Back in the day, her and my grandpa traveled the country in their RV and would park at my parent’s house for a few months every summer.  One thing I loved about those summer’s, besides the time together, was the food- we were sure to have a lovely meal every night that was complete with a fresh baked dessert, and us kids even got to help her with the preparations in the kitchen beforehand.  One of the recipes we were sure to enjoy were her pork chops- I don’t think us siblings even really liked sauerkraut until this dish!  This definitely has become one of my favorite simple, go-to dinners.
